Excellent Key Stage 5 Results 2022
We have celebrated a fantastic year of results at HATO today, with the best progress outcomes for a sizeable cohort since the Sixth Form began.
Our Year 13 students have achieved excellently in our very first season of mixed A level and vocational qualifications.
In Philosophy, History, English Literature, Politics and Psychology, students achieved outstanding results, testament to the extraordinary efforts of the students themselves and the staff who offered so much additional intervention in the final months running up to the exams.
Overall, our students achieved an average of a C grade, and top grades were achieved in History, English Literature, Politics, Psychology, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics.
We recognise that this cohort had an especially unusual journey through their GCSE and post-16 education, having had more “lost learning” at crucial times during year 11 and 12 than any other group, and not having sat external or final internal examinations at key stage 4. We are therefore especially proud of the amazing progress that the entire year group has made during their final year of education; each student has improved by over 1.5 grades on average in each of their subjects since November, representing a gain of nearly 5 grades per student.
Of utmost importance is that each student has secured the grades needed to progress to their next steps: 10% are going on to apprenticeships, 4% into employment and 86% to university.
We particularly celebrate some of our students whose endeavour has secured them places onto prestigious courses across Europe:
